Family Friendly Amazing hike that isn't too long, with beautiful views and an two amazing glacier-fed lakes.

Need to Know

Be aware that these are glacier-fed lakes so they tend to be on the very cold side. You probably don't want to plan on getting into the water until at least July. There is often times a rope swing tied to a tree that overhangs the water that is a lot of fun for the whole family.

Description

The drive up to the trail tends to be a little long, but it is well worth it once you get out into the fresh crisp air and hike through beautiful scenic landscape.
